Seattle Beer Week 2016 is upon us. It's actually an 11-day run of events all over the city, starting with today's tapping of the official brew of the celebration, the Daily Pale from Reuben's Brews. Reuben's will be pouring the special beer starting at 4 p.m. today.
Since your liver can only handle so much beer, Eater has sorted through the massive list and picked the best bets:
Seattle Proper, 5/12 at Naked City
"The best beers in the Seattle city limits, featuring 'fruit & other infusions, sours, & other rarities.'"
